“Whether barrel-housing in the juke joints and road houses of the Pacific Northwest, or playing on the big festival stages, Tracey Fordice and the 8-Balls can deliver Rockin Blues and Soulful Ballads utilizing a broad repertoire ranging from Etta James to Bonnie Raitt and Willie Dixon to J.J. Grey and Mofro. With a contemporary delivery of traditional blues standards, striking covers of up and coming new artists, and the awesome creative power of original song material, this is NOT just another blues band. Rack ‘em up and break!”

“The Lehrer’s new menu is sure to satisfy. All of this is happening while you enjoy live music performed by local talented musicians. Every Tuesday night from 8 p.m.-11 p.m., musicians from all over the city gather to create musical fusion. Hosted by Tracey Fordice and The 8-Balls, this is the evening that sizzles. (See ad and Music on Tap for more information.) At around 8 p.m., Tracey Fordice and The 8-Ballsperformed a half-hour set. If you are not familiar with the 8-Balls, they are a new band evolved from local band NoPoMoJo by Yearout two years ago. Band members are Yearout, song writer/guitar/vocals; Fordice, keyboard/vocals; Johnnie Corrie, drums/vocals; and newcomer Steven Mills, bass/vocals. They are more than a blues band, as they play a variety of music. They do mostly original songs written by Fordice and Yearout, like Long Hard Day, My Everything and newest song Givin’ It Up, to name a few.”
